The Jingle Bell Collar is adorable! I only wish Stuart would behave long enough for me to crochet some more. I've only done about an hour of stitching in the last several days and I think I'm going through withdrawl!
Too cute! We play with a Westie at the dog park every weekend, and she's darling. You should check out Roli's jingle bell collar, too. It's a harlequin-type collar with little bells. I made 2 for my dogs last year, and love them (one green, one red). Patty

I'm glad you like the collar. I didn't write the directions down but it has a row of mesh pattern (dc, ch1, sk next ch, dc). I used a sport weight yarn and I think an "F" hook.
so cute could you share the pattern?
Row 1 is done in sc.
Row 2 has 3 sc on the end with a dc mesh pattern worked in the middle and then one sc, ch 1 (buttonhole), sk a stitch, sc in next stitch.
Row 3 is done in sc. I sl st around the edges to finish it off. The ends will be narrower because of the sc used in row 2. I think it makes the overlapping ends less bulky. Anywho... sew on a little button and weave in two pieces of ribbon, meeting in the middle. With a needle and thread, tack the ends of the ribbon to the collar. Tie the ribbon in a bow and it's all done.
I hope this makes sense... lol.
